LG wm1832cw Washer IE error

I keep getting IE error around the rinse part. It keeps giving me the error and I keep repeating it and it won't ever finish. I looked at the manual and it tells me that water is insufficient and check the inlet and water hose but nothing his wrong. I looked at a couple of forums and it says it may be the water fill valve but I am unsure. The water (both hot and cold) runs fine when it begins. However, I notice that the water drizzles in the main wash when the rinse start, but the water flows real well in the softener and prewash. Is this common. if it is, then why am i having this problem over and over... ???can someone please help.

    Can you please tell me where is the outlet filter? Is it the filter in the front of the washer at the left bottom hand? if this is the one you are talking about then I already cleaned it. I will open rear cover and see if the thin tube is blocked or not.

  • ducmis Sep 12, 2007

    Oh, one more thing, the water drains fine. The error occurs when after the water drains from the first main wash, the IE normally comes on when it is refilling the tub to rinse.

    Thanks, i will try this on the weekend. Sounds complicated but better than giving my hard money away without giving it a chance. Again, thanks for everything.

    it turns out the that the water inlet supply valve was broken. The cold water is drizzling in and it should be flowing. the water inlet is broken. Just ordered the part. ..

Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. When u hav rinse problems, it is usually the outlet filter.

    Here is what i got from the net for you:

    Pull the cover off the back.
    Remove the stator with the big nut in the middle. Use a screwdriver to stop the entire tub from spinning while removing the bolt.
    You hv to remove a screw or two and unclip some wires.
    Pull the stator out, and remove/replace the sensor.
    Apparently LG is seeing a bunch of these, but the motor is solid, just a cheap sensor.

    Im not sure of what sensor they're talking about but the stator is in the back of the washer. There is an access cover with 4 screws that secure it. Remove the cover and the motor is right there in back of the drum. LG uses a direct drive motor. So you will need to take the rotor off to get the the stator. First thing I would do is to make sure the connector to the stator is secure. I would disconect it and reconnect.Then try to do a load of laundry. In my experience with LG that code seems to pop up a lot. Most people unplug the washer for a few minutes and then start the load again and they have no problem. But yes the code is to do with the stator.

    Complicated ducmis?, but the fault is with the great LG. All the best -premm

    When all else fails, know that it’s your value assembly on the cold intake side – soaking in CLR may help otherwise you need to replace.

Could you have changed the supply lines??? The new braided lines for the supplies are directional. What I mean is you can only install them in one direction, with the tag to the water shut off. They have a built in back flow preventer built into the hose. If one or both are backwards the IE light will come on. Hope this helps.

Lg wm1832cw de error occurs when starting the washing. after multiple tries, it might start

It is a door lock error caused by bad door lock switch or if your door is very hard to swing closed because the hinge is corroded, then the hinge could be causing the door lock to error.

Rinse and spin cycle keeps repeating at 11 minute time to 17 minute time and won't stop

Sounds like your washer does not empty enough water for the spinning to stop. Have you check that the filter(s) are not clogged?

I've got an LE code on the front of my washer

This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Hope this helps.

I have WM1832CW washer. I believe the timer is not functioning. It washes, but stays in the spin cycle. Goes through spin for several minutes and then it gets the IE error. The fabric softener never goes...

The error you are receiving is a bad water valve inlet problem. It's typically the cold inlet, but it's better to replace both.

Depending on the type of water you have, the valves could have lots of sentiment blocking the filter screens inside the valve, which can be cleaned, you'll just need to remove the water hose attached, and check.

If your valves look clear, then they have just possibly failed, and need to be replaced.

hi linda from what you describe? the machine does wash cycle? but won't spin cycle? if the machine is a couple of yrs old ? it may well be the motor that runs machine is in need of some new brushes fitting ? they are not expensive and may be worn too low to activate the higher revolutions needed for spin cycle it is not a difficult job to drop motor off and check/replace if you have a good male/ friend? with elec competence ? have found this problem on other machines and most recent zanusi cost £5 for 2x new brushes as apposed to the £££££s the lady was estimated for a timer ? by plumber so why not check it out b4 you part with money ? best wishes/luck

OE message on our LG WM1832CW washer

I just was searching for the same exact error on my LG WM1832CW washer. From reading the other posts on different manufacturers I realized this was a pump clog issue for mine too. There is a small door near the bottom of the front of the washer and if you open that there is a filter basket. Once you start turning it and break the seal, the water will come out quickly, have 2 flat large tupperwares so you can catch the water. Once you clean out that filter it's good to go. A 5 minute job.

LG WM1832CW Front Load Washer

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
